Server solutions for data centers are experiencing healthy growth as cloud and virtual computing become widely adopted. With this adoption comes increasing demand for rack space in data centers. This demand increases the value of data center real estate resulting in a corresponding increase in operating cost for each server. One solution to alleviate this increase is to deploy a high density server solution. Increasing the compute and storage density of each server derives more productivity from each server, and hence, increases the ROI on the physical space occupied by the server in the data center.
Thinkmate sells a large range of high density server solutions in its HDX product line. Thinkmate also sells Supermicro high density servers and blade servers. All high density server requirements can be fulfilled with a server solution from Thinkmate.
Thinkmate HDX servers are designed for space-constrained high performance computing. Available in 1U, 2U, and 3U sizes, HDX servers provide a practical blend of performance, density, energy efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. Each HDX server contains more than one server node. 1U HDX servers contain two nodes, 2U HDX servers contain two or four nodes, and 3U HDX servers contain eight nodes. HDX server nodes run dual Intel® Xeon® or AMD Opteron™ CPUs. Each HDX server solution comes with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 or a Linux server operating system such as CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, or Red Hat®.
High density Supermicro server solutions available from Thinkmate include both blade server and non blade server solutions. Supermicro blade server solutions are the SuperBlade® and MicroBlade® servers. Each blade server solution uses blade enclosures that can be installed in standard 42U racks. SuperBlade® enclosures are 7U in size and can house up to 20 server nodes with 40 Intel® Xeon® or AMD Opteron™ CPUs (in the Twin Blade configuration). MicroBlade® enclosures are 6U in size and can house 112 low power eight-Core Intel® Atom™ CPUs or 56 Intel® Xeon® CPUs.
The highest density non blade server solutions from Supermicro are the Twin server solutions. These servers come in 1U, 2U, and 4U sizes. Supermicro 1U Twin, Supermicro 2U Twin, and Supermicro TwinPro™ servers contain two server nodes with two CPUs per node in 1U and 2U chassis. Supermicro 2U Twin2 and TwinPro2™ servers contain four server nodes with two CPUs per node in a 2U chassis. Supermicro FatTwin™ servers contain up to eight server nodes with two CPUs per node in a 4U chassis.
Thinkmate’s high density solutions are designed to provide high performance computing with low TCO. Each high density server solution achieves these goals by:
